I don't want to remove the socketserver module without a suitable replacement for http.server in the standard library.

But http.server could be on the remove list too... it gets mighty little 
support, has very little functionality, and implements a CGI interface 
(although that also has very little functionality), and you have the CGI 
tools on the remove list, rendering the CGI interface implemented by 
http.server less easily usable.

Further, it doesn't directly support https:, and browsers are 
removing/reducing support for http:.

I can't speak to xmlrpc or logging configuration.
